Proposal Would Let Immigrants Apply To Be Police Officers (Major Barf Alert)
nbc4.com ^ | December 10, 2007

Posted on 12/10/2007 3:49:41 PM PST by khnyny

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The agency that oversees training and hiring standards for police departments in Maryland is looking at a proposal that would let noncitizens with green cards become police officers.

The proposal is being championed by Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger. He said it doesn't make sense that legal immigrants can join the U.S. military but can't become law enforcement officers.

The Maryland Police Training Commission could vote on the issue next month.

Critics said it would be difficult to check the backgrounds of noncitizens applying to be officers, and they said the proposal could allow terrorists to infiltrate police agencies.

Errrr, immigrants with “green cards” are defending all of us in Iraq! About 46,000 of them I think I heard in all the U.S. services throughout the world (including CONUS). So, I guess I have to be on their side on this one.

So in the People’s Republic of Montgomery County, it’s illegal (or near impossible) for a US citizen to possess and carry a pistol but they want to give non-citzens the ability to carry and use semi-automatic weapons?

Welcome to MD, please hand over your guns to the officer in a burka.

I was born and raised in Maryland. I was Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosi's next door neighbor briefly when her father was the corrupt Mayor of Baltimore. Her brother would later follow his father as a corrupt Mayor (and beat a criminal rap when the chief witness suddenly disappeared).

I thought Maryland politics was about as bad as they could get, back then. Boy was I wrong. The People's Republic of Maryland is going straight down the dumper. I'm glad I now live in North Carolina for the balance of my life. I feel very sorry for people who are still trapped in Maryland.

If the applicants are legal immigrants and they are able to perform a thorough background check, I don’t see a problem at all. It’s great for those legal immigrants that want to take on dangerous work and assimilate into our society.

There are a lot of police departments that have recruited resident aliens to work. I worked with a couple that had heavy Irish accents. On second thought, quite a few had heavy Spanish accents too.

You don't have to be.

I'm not.

I'm all in favor of green card military, but that requires a much greater level of commitment, and has a much greater level of oversight.

Military yes, police, no way, we have enough corruption now.

It’s knee jerkers like you that make any discussion about immigrants a non-starter around here.

Let me make it REAL SIMPLE FOR YOU:

Has a Green Card = Has Legal Status

Uh, that they have a Green Card says that they do follow the rules since those are not that easy to come by.

But let’s not let the facts get in the way of immigrant bashing.

If you have a green card, you are here legally. Or is every immigrant an illegal in your book?

Green card fraud is rampant. Look up Nada Nadim Prouty. Her sister was also found guilty. One was a CIA/FBI agent, ( in reality, a Hezbollah spy) the other was an officer in the USMC.

It is rather difficult to "overstay" one's "now-expired green card," considering that (a) green cards (or, as they are more properly called, Permanent Resident cards) are issued to permanent residents, expire only after 10 years (which is a rather long time, considering that permanent residents are allowed to apply for citizenship after 5 years), and are essentially automatically renewed, provided that the individual maintains US residency.

We're not talking about illegal immigrants here, we're talking about legal immigrants who are well along the path to US citizenship.

You might want to read a bit more closely before declaring war. As a number of (but apparently not enough) replies have indicated, this proposal concerns legal permanent residents — not those who are in this country illegally.

What the blurb doesn’t explain, is that other jurisdictions who have enacted this policy have become “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants. Chicago is a good example. IOW, immigration law goes out the window.

The other danger that I see is well connected Mexican drug cartels placing their own people in law enforcement. That’s just one danger of improper employee vetting.

Why? Why the police, any more than the military?

And you still have yet to explain your “invaders” comment - are you saying you consider legal immigrants (permanent residents, even) to be “invaders”?

The military should only be citizens too.

We are so fractured and balkanized already with thirty million non english speakers refusing to assimilate. We should have a twenty year moratorium on all imigration.

Citizenship should be hard to get and mean something.

My point is that they are not "illegal" immigrants, as some were saying. They immigrated legally.

What's yours? That people who come to the United States legally, to work, contribute to society and be productive, are on par with people who kill kids?
